Blogging the Southeast Asian Earthquake and Tsunami. Bloggers have been particularly active in gathering information from a region-wide perspective and offering ways for all of us to get involved in the relief efforts. One of my favorite bloggers, Ethan Zuckerman alerts his readers that Dina Mehta, a computer programmer in Bombay, India, has constructed The South-East Asia Earthquake and Tsunami Blog [aka SEA-EAT] as an electronic portal for the region -

The impact of the Southeast Asia Earthquake and Tsunamia on residents and visitors with disabilities has been tremendous. As with the September 11 attacks, it has proved more difficult to follow the disability angle on this story. But now the folks at the International Disability News Ticker have created a page where we can follow the various repercussions. I, for one, hope that they will take the the time to continuously update this page. Please send them notes of support on behalf of their work on this portal.

Hi Mike ... thanks for picking up on our blog. BTW, am not a computer programmer at all ... am a researcher and have been researching how social technologies can change the way people communicate, collaborate and organise for work. :)

sorry - one addition ... the site wasnt constructed by me alone - there's a whole group of 100's of volunteers who self-organised and did some wonderful work.
